Tourism iPad App

In early 2012 we began development of an iPad app for our sister company, Destination Connemara. Connemara is a region in the west of Ireland that boasts spectacular landscapes and is one of the most important tourist destinations in Ireland. Destination Connemara already had a valuable well of content on Connemara, so the goal was to make this valuable information accessible to the visitor through the iPad platform.

From start to finish, we made good use of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite to bring this simple and content-rich app to fruition and ultimately, to the App Store. The new tools created by Adobe for use within InDesign, a design and  layout application which we were already familiar with, proved to be a powerful way for us to accomplish this work.

The purpose of the app was to showcase Connemara as one of the most spectacular regions in Ireland, a must-see for all those traveling to the west of Ireland. The app helps users organise their trip, choose their accommodation, plan their daytime schedule and evening entertainment.
